You need to see Motohed: Time To Ride, an off-road riding vid. There is a long section in there of Ty Davis on a yellow YZF making tables out of tee boxes, berms out of sand traps, and double jumps out of bunkers.

Pretty cool, actually...


There is now a Motohed II also... :)

I second the time to ride video. It's good.

Ditto above. I'm a pretty avid golfer, but it was great to see Ty tear it up! :)

Actually I would have liked to see Ty twist the throttle a little harder than he did.

It was pretty obvious they had some kind of deal with him that he could only do the jumping and riding IF he didnt roost or lock the brakes. The only place he threw any terra firma was in the sand.

None the less it was still sweet watching him ride on the course :)

One thing the video fails to mention is that Ty owns the golf course. Don't try this on my course or you will be shot! :)
